Enterprise Connect was a great time to meet with vendors, end users, and other media and analysts. The event was filled with news, keynotes, and alcohol resulting with a distinct impression about the industry. I figured fresh from the conference, it’s a good time to reflect. In many ways, the conference reflects the current state of the industry.
Of course, Enterprise Connect is subject to the reality-distortion magic common in Orlando: just because the vendors offer it, or even push it, doesn’t mean anyone is buying it (or that it even works). But the pitches do suggest that communications technologies are continuing to transform how business gets done. The report card below blurs the distinction between the conference and the industry, but the conference did provide a fresh glimpse of the latest and greatest as well as an overall industry tone.
